Pluralsight announced that the Women Tech Council named two Pluralsight leaders as winners in the tenth annual Women Tech Awards, a prestigious honor recognizing technology-focused women.
Vice President of product Mariah Hay and head of social impact Lindsey Kneuven were recognized as two of Utah's most powerful technology leaders at a luncheon held on Friday, October 27th, at Salt Lake City'sGrand America Hotel.
Each year, the Women Tech Council recognizes Utah's finest women who are driving innovation, impacting companies, creating new technologies and inspiring the technology community. During the 10th annual Women in Tech Awards, seven women were recognized for forging new paths in technology.
"We are proud to have two of our deserving leaders earn this recognition," said Aaron Skonnard, co-founder and CEO of Pluralsight. "Mariah and Lindsey have cemented their careers in improving the lives of others. Their professional and personal contributions are invaluable to both the success of our company and our community."
As VP of product, Hay leads six co-located product teams and challenges and inspires each one to understand the daily life of Pluralsight customers, guiding the design of a human-centered product from the ground up. Under her leadership, Pluralsight successfully launched its technology learning platform, which now serves 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies. Hay founded and co-organizes Ladies that UX Salt Lake City, a collaborative community of women that pushes boundaries, promotes women and discusses UX. She also spends her time as a co-organizer for Product Hive, a community of product managers, strategists and designers who learn, contribute and connect through volunteer-led opportunities.
In her position as head of social impact, Kneuven plays a vital role in creating and implementing strategies that align Pluralsight's product, culture, community, people and brand to make a meaningful impact on the way the world learns. Less than six months after joining Pluralsight, Lindsey oversaw the creation of Pluralsight One: a social initiative that supports nonprofit organizations around the world. Under this initiative, Pluralsight joined the Pledge 1% integrated philanthropy movement and has committed one percent of its product, time, equity and profits to uplift communities in need. Kneuven has been recognized by Utah Business as one of 30 Women to Watch and listed by the Community Foundation of Utah as an Enlightened 50.
